Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - MOTOR GUIDE -

con­sume only 6.0 litres of petrol for ev­ery 100 kilo­me­tres trav­elled on the com­bined ur­ban / high­way cy­cle. The test car clocked up 5.2 litres per 100 kilo­me­tres on the mo­tor­way and 8.0 litres per 100 around town.

On the open road Civic pro­vides a bal­anced drive. It’s fun to drive and grips well through corners with steer­ing that’s a lit­tle on the heavy side, just the way we like it.

Fuel con­sump­tion is of­fi­cially listed at 6.0 litres per 100 kilo­me­tres on the com­bined city/high­way drive. We av­er­aged 7.4 L/100 km dur­ing our week be­hind the wheel. SUM­MING UP The gen-ten Honda Civic looks great and has a re­fine­ment that com­pares favourably with some larger, more ex­pen­sive, cars. There’s also a road pres­ence that’s been lack­ing in re­cent Civics and we have no doubt it could cope with a long in­ter­state trip.

The new turbo-petrol en­gine should be a ma­jor sell­ing point. It’s quiet and re­fined with plenty of torque and low fuel con­sump­tion.

Honda has joined the up­ward move­ment in stan­dard war­ranties with cov­er­age for five years and un­lim­ited dis­tance on all its mod­els.
